-KIcoptt;ayji Ucfdfe What is it? Mil^ttrd'fi Needles are kept in thousands and sold # l|& per packet at E. Webb&dfes. . It was dfein^J tpe early part of 1875 that the Editors oft^^T3athurst Post found themselves in Alexandria? a flourishing commercial city in Egypt, on the Mediterranean side. Strolling to the water's edge, they saw two immense granite blocks, of four sides each, about 69 feet high, with a width of about seven feet at the base, tapering upwards to about four feet, and terminating in a summit called pyramidion, from its being shaped like a small pyramid. They observed one standing and the other lying almost buried in the sand. The guide informed them that they were Cleopatra's Needles. ' That one,' said he, pointing to the one lying in the sand, ' belongs to the English, but they don't seem to care much for it.' The travellers then seated themselves on the one that belonged to them (for even Australians are sometimes glad enough to be thought English),...

The Electric Light under the Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 February 1882

ifte (Blerf^ StiflM nwtyr th« ..£«i. Of the many uses to which the electric light is now being put, one of the most interesting is its applica tion to submarine exploration. It was first employed in this manner for the purpose of examining the wreck- of the notorious ' Alabama,' which sank after her contest with the ' Kearsage,' off the French port of Cherbourg ; but since that occurrence it has been greatly improved. The electric light is contained in a.strong cylinder, 4J feet high and almost 4 feet in diameter, and furnished with a substantial plate-glass bottom. The kiwefr part of the cylinder is supplied with alum water in order to counteract the pressure of the sea, whicli increases vety rapidly the deeper the appliance is lowered, In the tfp'jer portion of th& M^indbr there is an electric lamjf of great power, the light from which passes through the ahiui-water and the plate-glass, illuminates the bottom of the sea for a considerable distance, forming, so to speak, th...

Many of the statistics which it embodies are already familiar to our readers ; but it is full of valuable facts and suggestions on the general position of American trade, on the keen.' efforts made by the United States manufacturers to open new markets for their productions, and on the prospects of the industries of the Union under the protective tariff. The United States manufacturers are, Mr. Drummond says, clever enough to discover what are the requirements in the different countries, not so much heavy kinds of goods, but in the lighter kinds of descriptions, aud immedi ately take means to supply them. Hence the progress they make in the production of light and ingenious tools, which arc already displacing those of Sheffield and Bir mingham in foreign markets...

The only ground on which the p&lic can come to a right conclusion on this very important subject is by comparing the statistics of two countries or colonies which are close together, and having to a certain extent the same natural advantages for trade. We cannot take two countries or colonies better situated for com parison than New South Wales and Victoria, — one having the freest ports in the world, and the other being one of the most extensively protected countries under the sun. So that our readers can have a fair opportunity of comparing the two colonies we give below an article, based on the statistics of each, taken from a Vic torian paper — the Australasian of Feb. 4, 1882 : — 'Before the end of the first month of 1882, and almost simultaneously with the appearance of the Victo...

A government return has jtfst appeared WBich gives the duties levied upon the principal articles of British production in 1860-61, in 1870, in 1875, and iu 1880, by France, Germany, Russia, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Austria, and Italy. Thus the returns cover nearly the whole ot the European continent. Other returns will follow which will exhibit the duties levied throughout the greater part of tlw world upon the most prominent goods manufactured in the United Kingdom. The returns embrace, amongst other things, iron and steel products in every form, together with tin, copper, and lead. The publication is very timely. It comes as a distinct reply to statements which have been made by the protectionists to the effect that ' the third of a century has passed by, and all the nations by which we are surrounded have not only not become more free-trade, but on the whole have become more protectionist.'

A New Canal. —The Times describes a proposed canal by which the journey both from England and India to China would be lessened by at least six hundred miles. The canal would be cut at that point where the Malayan Peninsula is narrowest: and as the distance between the Indian Ocean and the China Sea is further lessened by natural water ways, extending, inland from both shores, the actual cutting would be only thirty miles long. The districts through which the canal would pass are known to be fertile and to contain great mineral wealth. A tin mining company, has been established for more than ten years at Malewon, on the Pakehan, and gold has been found in the neighbouring stream of the Lenya. The engineering difficulties are believed not to be very great* The French would be greatly benefited by the shortening of their road to Saigon and their possessions on the Cambodia ; and not only might their sympathy and co-operation be counted npon, but they appear to have even taken the initi...
